Northumberland Illuminated
Northumberland Illuminated
  • Description
  • Related

Northumberland is renowned for its breathtaking scenery, tiny villages, historic monuments and sparkling townscapes. Largely rural in nature, its sweeping beaches and heather-clad hills are a delight to the eye. But after dark it takes on a completely different character.

A satellite image at night would show only a dark mass west and north of the bright paintsplat of light that is Newcastle. But if you could look more closely you would find pockets of light illuminating some of our greatest treasures: candles lighting ancient religious relics from the first flowering of Christianity in Britain; the 900-year-old floodlit Hexham Abbey looming over the town; the ‘Spirit of the Staithes’ sculpture on Blyth’s waterfront - a modern interpretation of the town’s long connection with the sea; a wooden cross at Heavenfield commemorating a battle fought in 633 AD between a Northumbrian army led by Oswald of Bernicia and Welsh invaders.

While others are comfortably tucked up on their sofas for the evening, David Taylor has sought out these places, turning his creative eye to the lighting challenges posed by each location. From the lights of Berwick-upon-Tweed twinkling reflectively in its river to a moody Winter’s Gibbet, lit by torchlight against a darkening sky and a stark reminder of a more brutal past, David’s images are captivating.

If you are looking for a book which will give you a deep warm glow on a dark winter’s night, and an utterly fascinating perspective on this ancient border county, look no further.

David Taylor is an award-winning landscape and travel photographer. He was born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, and now lives in the delightful Northumbrian market town of Hexham. His work has enabled him to travel all over the world, but his first love remains the awe-inspiring countryside and stunning coastline of his home county. His images of the area are much sought after and are frequently used for promotional and marketing purposes by Northumberland National Park.

David also writes features and supplies images for a variety of national and regional magazines; his regular photography workshops around Northumberland are extremely popular with novices and experienced photographers alike. David’s stunning and atmospheric images are regularly exhibited at venues around the county.
